Features:

  • Arbitrary text fields can be specified, with min/max/required settings for validation
  • Support for checkboxes and drop-down lists
  • Nonce-based script spam prevention
  • Email address validation, including a check for a valid MX record (Unix only)
  • Safe escaping of input data
  • Automatically generates an accessible form layout using valid XHTML, including

Cool plugin Zem !
I’ve hacked it a little and deleted the four \r in the header cause my provider (OVH France) don’t accept them.
Thanks,

Michael Wright:
Looks great.

tried using it – get an ‘email can’t be sent’ error message.
Michael Wright:
Precise message – ‘unable to sent email’.

Any ideas how to get it to work?

I have checked my php.ini file – this has the correct mail settings.

Regards,

Mikr

Hi Zem,

I’ve sorted this out.

Testing site on local machine – all I needed was a local mailserver setup.

Excellent form1

Cheers!
zem_contact_reborn is the further developed version of the original one by zem.
Visit the Form and get it.
